WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko's world title defence against Britain's Tyson Fury on October 24 in Dusseldorf, Germany has been postponed.
Ukrainian Klitschko has pulled out due to a tendon tear in the left calf. A new date will be announced next week and the fight will remain at the same venue.
Klitschko said: "I’m sorry to inform you that I have to postpone my fight against Tyson Fury due a minor injury. I’m working hard to reschedule the fight and as soon as I know I will keep you posted about the new date."
Fury said: "Well it’s official Klitschko has pulled out of the fight with an injury in his leg, it’s a bit funny as I predicted this would happen!!! Don’t feel sorry for me. I’ll be OK. I’m sorry for the fans again as they are the biggest losers here. Flights & hotels travel, sorry guys."
